I love this recipe, Ahron. Simple, with readily available ingredients.

I can get sour cherries, but only in plastic containers. What size were the tins you used?

Ahron, you did a great job with this!

The cherry soup looks perfect and your photos show the process very well - a wonderful pictorial for our forum!

Thank you my friend for such a beautiful summer treat! Hug

I remember, when I was very little, telling my great-grandma I was going to make her cherry soup. I didn't know there really was such a thing!

Ahron, 

This is called Cherry Gazpacho in Iberia´s Cherry Designation of Origin, Valle de Jerte, in northern Extremadura at the 3 corners, where Toledo, Ávila and Salamanca preside. 

It is absolutely delicious. 

I am going to use fresh cherries and eliminate the white sugar, ( cannot consume ) and follow your recipe !  

Thank you very much for posting. 

Bon voyage.
